From 15 July, MeetFrida will be showing artworks by ten Hamburg artists in the Pop-Up Gallery in the Hanseviertel. The new group exhibition focuses on works by young artists that have been created in recent months and against the backdrop of the COVID crisis. The works deal with the identity of places, seek answers to fragmented realities and create approaches to a "new normal" between imagined and real space. Visitors can view the originals of the works on site, which we are bringing into public space as part of the Hamburg Summer of Culture.
